Everything starts elsewhere

UK tour 2019

Everything starts elsewhere refers to a text by Argentinian poet Roberto Juarroz used for one of the pieces of this programme, but also to the creative process of transmission that begins in the imagination of composers, it evolves into a written form, and which is then interpreted by the musicians and reinterpreted by the public. The text also refers to the itinerant nature of music, especially for this programme that reflects music from both sides of the Channel: created on one side and performed on the other. Imagined around a new piece by Jérôme Combier, commissioned by the collective, this programme will be performed as part of our 2018-19 season at the BNU in Strasbourg before going on an exciting tour in several venues around the UK.
